Test cuts checked out and I'll have a stack of parts waiting for me when I get back. I'll also be picking up the Hellas next week so then it will be in the hands of the powder coater. Moving right along!!

I'll take one.

Don't care about the bulb. There are many H4 bulbs watt combinations. Might want to let each buyer source their own with regards to their particular bike's stator output.

Baja Designs has a clear Lexan lens protector available for their lights. Apparently no such option for TT. Can you aqddress protection for the Hella glass lens you will be using?

Your right along with my thoughts on the bulbs, everybody will want something different.


Right now I'm concentratiing on just getting the conversions done but have thought about the protection. I've got a couple ideas for a polycarbonate protector similar to the BD.

I assume people will be more interested in polycarbonate rather than some sort of screen???

Okay people, real close. The first batch of parts are fully machined and will be dropped off at the powder coater in the morning. Hardware is in the house, Hellas are on the way. I'm going away until after the first of the year so I should be ready to ship within a couple day after I return.

I'll have a price tomorrow for all you that have been waiting.

The finished product before powder coat...









And in a pinch you can install a standard 6024 sealed beam...

Very Nice!

Are you gonna include instructions on how to wire a High/Low switch to the TT Light?

What colors are you getting done.

What colors are you getting done.

Most dual sport bikes already have a hi/low light switch so you should be all set with the switch part. As for wiring, the Racelight uses spade connectors and so do H4 bulbs. I'll provide a diagram as to which terminal is hi/low/negative. Unless you are going to install some sort of high watt bulb in the light then the bikes wiring should handle it no problem. Some bikes, such as Huskys, use the mini spade connectors in which case you will need to install the standard size spades.



COLORS...... "You can have any color you want as long as it's black!"

The rest of the light is black so I went with black. When I was at the powder coater yesterday, he threw a color chart on the counter with about 200 colors . I guess if somebody REALLY has to have a custom color, I can get it done but the cost for one offs is pretty shocking.

Another thought I had was custom masks to apply to the ring. This may prove to be too expensive though.

How about raw finish with no powder coating?

PRICE,,, everybody has been waiting for this......

After going over the numbers and double checking everything I've come up with the price.

What you will get:
Assembled conversion which includes the Hella H4 reflector, powder coated adaptor assembly, stainless steel fasteners and USPS shipping.

Plus for everyone that purchases and says they are an ADV inmate, I'll send $2 to Baldy for using his site.


$105 shipped CONUS


I'm going out of town tomorrow and will be back after the new year. The powder coating should be done sometime that week and I'll be ready to ship, everything else is in stock for the first run.


Just want to add,, the first batch is 10 units and 2 are spoken for so I need to know who definitely wants one to determine if I need to get a second batch in the works asap. The people that said yes before the price, I still need to know your status.

Thanks

I can do that on the next batch, this first batch is all being coated. And I can knock the price down some.

Looks like the first run is almost spoken for. I've had a couple requests for raw, un-coated adaptors so I'll get extras on the next run for that purpose. Calling the machine shop today with that order and should have those next week also.
